Beverly is a quiet, warm, community based, neighborly, safe, racially diversified neighborhood for the middle class. I love this neighborhood because I feel safe that I know my neighbors. We pay attention to who comes in and out of the neighborhood. Residents of Beverly consist of firefighters, policemen, postal carriers, lawyers, doctors, nurses, business owners, etc. whom are homeowners. There are no vacant lots or homes, and not too many people sell their homes fast. There are plenty of retailers nearby. The scenic view of the Dan Ryan Forest Reserve is breathtaking in the fall full of life and colors. The wildlife migrate to the area including deer, woodpeckers and hummingbirds to name a few. Overall, this is a neighborhood for civilians who are educated, sophisticated, and friendly.

Beverly is a city neighborhood that has a very strong community feel. Neighbors are friendly and look out for one another, but aren't too nosy either. There is very little crime, with excellent public schools and a growing restaurant/nightlife scene, along with such cultural events as the Frunchroom and Beverly Art Walk. Beverly has historically embraced diversity as other south side neighborhoods experienced white flight, and that welcoming attitude is still reflected in the neighborhood. Although it is on the southern edge of the city, commuting is simple, with excellent access to expressways and the Rock Island Metra, as well as 24 hour bus service on western and 95th street. Bonus, it is architecturally and geographically interesting when compared to much of the city, hilly with large, gracious homes on wide lots. Beverly is a wonderful option for people who don't want to lose access to the city, but want a safe, comfortable place to raise a family.
Beverly is a great place to live if you're a young couple looking to settle down and establish a life for yourself, or if you're older and want a quiet neighborhood. The school system, both public and private, are excellent and there is a strong sense of community. However, it does not offer much if you're looking to be young and single. Nightlife is nonexistent outside of going to bars on Western Avenue, if you'd like to do anything else you're going to have to travel further into the city or suburbs.
